It’s still a bit chilly on the east coast, but Susan Blond doesn’t let inclimate weather take away the spring in her step. Warm up with the latest edition of Blond Tips, a series of silly, sassy, seasonal hints and recommendations from the President of Susan Blond, Inc.

Tips include:

• Call your friends with beach houses immediately to catch up, because if you wait until the middle of May, it’s obvious you’re only calling for one reason.

• It’s time to get out of your house, so if you can’t plan a big trip make a day trip. If you live east go west, if you live up go down.
